Term Needs Definition 

The administration should officially define the term “so¬ 
cial function," While being specific as to the restrictions plac¬ 
ed upon social functions, the STUDENT HANDBOOK, which of¬ 
ficially states the rules by which students must govern their 
deportment, falls to define this term. 

ALTHOUGH the suspended students did not use this point In 
their defense, the chance exists that a student could violate one 
or more of the restrictions without knowllngly sponsoring a so¬ 
cial function. Under the present unwritten Interpretation, a 
gathering of four or more students Is subject to the restrictions 
placed on social functions. But, a gathering of four or more people 
Is not necessarily called a social function unless the situation 
causes a disturbance. In that case, the administration will legally 
take disciplinary action against the group. 

However, this Is not to say that an unscheduled, unchaperon¬ 
ed party or dance which does not create a disturbance is not a 
social function, but that It Is less likely to come to the attention 
of the administration. 

Each campus organization Is limited to two social functions 
per quarter. These are usually planned by a committee. Does 
this mean that a gathering must be planned by two or more In 
order to be considered a social function ? Obviously, a gathering 
of four or more would necessitate some planning. 

HOWEVER, this interpretation defines the term only as to 
the number Involved. The definition should include the purpose 
of social functions so as not to impose undue limit upon the day 
to day life of the student. 

Since the above stated limited Interpretation forms the basis 
for the administration’s decisions on this matter, it should be 
officially stated In the STUDENT HANDBOOK as it now stands. 

However, the administration should further define the ab¬ 
stract term "social function" in a more concrete and inclusive

THE ONLY requirement for 
this club is that you be a wife. 

One of the club’s projects In¬

soldiers in Vietnam. The stu¬ 
dent wives received the follow¬ 
ing response for their deeds: 


We the officers and men of 
Company A, 1st Battalion, 26th 
Infantry would like to thank you 
for your generous package. 

To men who are living un¬ 
der the difficult conditions we do 
In Vietnam, any comfort is 
greatly appreciated. Your gifts 
were all needed and none of them 
will go to waste. 

It Is comforting to know that 
In spite of all the protests and 
such that go on at home the ma¬ 
jority of the American people 
are behind us. Rest assured 
that we know you are behind us 
100 % and the package and let¬ 
ter you sent only serve to 
strengthen our faith in the 

American people’s support of 
our actions. 

I wish that we could write 
to each of you Individually but 
time does not permit, so please 
accept this letter as all of our 
thanks, to all of you. 

Enclosed is a "BlueSpad¬

Parade Oj Opinion 

Dear Editors: 

Alpha Omlcron Pi Sorority 
has felt for a long time that 
something should be done on 
this campus to promote schol¬ 
arship and Improve the stu¬ 
dent Image on campus. Stu¬ 
dents are on campus to learn 
and It was time to allow them 
to use the knowledge they have 
acquired, not just their 

The group worked all last 
spring and this fall to promote 
the Rose Bowl, which Is pat¬ 
terned after the College Bowl 
of television. This was Included 
In our sorority article that was 
published by the "Volette.” 
Thereafter, In the last two Is¬ 
sues, you have written the ADP1 
Rose Bowl. 

We have always been proud 
of the paper and the work It has 
done on this campus. However, 
we feel credit should be given 
where It Is due ...

October 19, 1967 

I have become concerned 
with the apparent apathy which 
exists on our campus. The 
students In general do not seem 
concerned with campus events 
or activities. 

WE HAVE a winning foot¬ 
ball team and relatively good 
attendance at the games, but 
spirit and support seems to be 
lacking. Even the cheerleaders 
seem too interested in personal 
conversation to lead the fans. 
The student newspaper lacks the 
"guts” to have an editorial po¬ 
licy and would rather rely on 
filler for editorials. The stu¬ 
dent government Is doing all 
It can to bring outside attrac¬ 
tions to our campus; but with 
one exception (the Four Sea¬ 
sons’ concert), attendance Is 

WE HAVE an extremely pro¬ 
gressive administration, and 1 
am sure they would appreciate 
hearing from the student body 
regarding Improvements to the 
student life program In all Its 

I AM NOT writing this as a 
criticism but hopefully as a 
challenge. College life Is what 
you make It. Don’t throw away 
an opportunity. 

Yours for a better U.T.M., 

G. Robert Brengle 

Assistant Professor 
Dear Prof. Brengle; . 

This newspaper has been— 

and is- concerned over the 
apathy on campus and off. Edi¬ 
torial readership on any news¬ 
paper Is relatively low. Less 
than half the public reads edi¬ 
torial columns. However, you 
evidently missed the 
VOLETTE’S editorials - 
"Apathy Is the Enemy” and 
"Apathy: Pain of Plenty”- 

on February 9 and February 
16 this year, respectively. 

AS FOR an editorial policy, 
this paper— like many, both 
commercial and campus- 
does not have a written one. 
It has used what you label 
"filler” editorials on occasion. 
It Is not so narrow-minded to 
believe Its staff conceives the 
only worthwhile editorial opin¬ 
ion in the country. Guest or 
syndicated or "canned” editor¬ 
ials are common. Some are 
bad, some good. The quality of 
the American press Is not of 
current concern In this In¬ 
stance. The Nashville TENNES¬ 
SEAN has used them. The 
APPEAL uses them often, as¬ 
suming you read one of the 
two major dallies serving this 

The VOLETTE’S "guts” can 
be as visceral as a torn in¬ 
testine If it feels an event Is 
worthy of such graphic evalua¬ 
tion. It takes a stand when It 
feels one Is necessary. Other¬ 
wise, It assumes that the pub¬ 
lic — campus — to a degree has 
enough sense to reach a deci¬ 
sion on an issue after an objec¬ 
tive Interpretation of It. 

AS FOR the student body, 
this newspaper Is for it. It IS 
the student body’s logical, ob¬ 
jective voice. It welcomes cri¬ 
ticism, Including yours. 

The Editors 

Dear Editors: 

Nineteen to eighteen was 
the final score. Any reason 
Martin should have won? The 
football team romps over four 
opponents. The entire student 
body says "we” are ranked 
eighth in the nation. Apprecia¬ 
tion for the minor role the 
football team played In se¬ 
curing that eighth position 
was shown Thursday night. 

We went to the pep rally. 
We listened to the cheerlead¬ 
ers cheer and tell us how much 
we appreciated the team. We 
looked with Indifference at the 
groups of football players, 
standing by themselves. Fin¬ 
ally, the rally was over. 

Now, 1 am just an Ohio 
Yankee. But, for some strange 

reason I take pride In the 
school I attend. I think much 
more of our football team 
than Knoxville’s or Geneva 
High’s. Just once In the five 
years I have been here I would 
like to see us act a little ma¬ 
ture. Let’s do something for 
ourselves; we will continue to 
be here. . . It’s homecoming 
week. Why not act like It? 

Pat the football players on 
the back. Would we object to 
someone telling us our new 
Cadillac Is nice? Let’s cheer 
WITH the cheerleaders at the 
rally and at the game. Let’s 
give the players a reason to win. 
Perhaps, this Friday we could 
stage a protest march on the 
football dorm. .. against Mid¬ 
dle Tennessee! We stand to 
accomplish a great deal more 
than the last one.

BRUXELLES-By the end o i this week over 1,250 students 
will land In New York after spending a summer working In 

The working students were _ 

selected as participants In Jobs Next year, ISIS expects t 
Abroad, a program designed by have over 3,000 Jobs avail 
the International Student Infor- able to applicants whoqua'l^ 
matlon Service OSIS)a non-pro- and are accepted by the Job 
fit organization based In Brus- Abroad Cultural Board, 
sels, Belgium. The return of this year* 

The Idea behind Jobs corps and 1,250 worm 
Abroad, as expressed by Mr, 

Francis X. Gordon, Executive 
Director, Is "to provide stu¬ 
dents and teachers an oppor¬ 
tunity to Increase their under¬ 
standing of a foreign culture 
by experiencing Its traditional 
way of life." 

Through Jobs Abroad, a 
member can work in the lan¬ 
guage speaking area of his 
choice and may select work 
from nine job categories. 

Since most participants have 
little or no work experience, the 
job categories available to 
them consist mostly of jobs In 
non-skilled work. The cate¬ 
gories are: Farm Work, Con¬ 
struction, Work Camps, Camp 
Counselling, Child Care, Hotel- 
Restaurant - Resort, Factory, 

Hospital and Special. Hie last 
two generally call for previous 
experience and better-than- 
average language fluency. 

Participation In the Jobs 
Abroad program has given 
many a student and teacher a 
practical solution to coming 
abroad. Working at a paying job 
diminishes the costs of the 
vast educational experiences 
of a summer abroad.

According to the United States Civil Service Association, 
there are only a limited number of summer Jobs available

CHANCE8 of getting a Job depend on the number and types 
of Jobs available and the qualifications of the applicant. Job

Modern Dance Conveys 
Messages Through Movement 

By Sherry Hilton? 

The art of Modern Dance Is simply being able to express 
emotion, moods, or Ideas through movement. 

Dancing Is a way of moving the body, the Instrument of 

dance. In rhythm to keep time 
to music or to a beating drum. 
Today dancing Is for fun or to 
entertain spectators, but danc¬ 
ing among primitive peoples 
was very serious for It was 
part of their religion and magic. 
They had dances that were for 
rain, fair weather, victory In 
battle and fertility. They danced 
In celebration erf a wedding or 
In mourning for a fellow tribes¬ 

Tribal dances were sym¬ 
bolical dances, In which move¬ 
ments and gestures were used 
to represent real thoughts. As 
time passed, the gestures and 
movements became more com¬ 
plicated. Various peoples de¬ 
veloped different styles of

a scion of the cult dance and 
In a few centuries, It was 
characterised by forms, rules, 
fixed vocabulary, and artificial 
formulas. However, such danc¬ 
ers as Isadora Duncan, Ruth St. 
Denis, Ted Shawn, and Mary 
Wlgtnan rebeled from these tra¬ 
ditional concepts and per¬ 
formed from their Inter-being. 

Isadora Duncan, probably 
the highest figure In the world 
of modem dance, performed 
from personal expression. 

Ruth St. Denis devoted her¬ 
self to religious dance. She 
relied on the beauty of move¬ 
ment and she had a faculty for 

Her husband, Ted Shawn, 
battled for the cause of men in 
dance. Mary Wigman widened 
the range of dance and worked 
on the advancement of the 
underlying theory of Modem 
Dance. She was Inherently 
dramatic because of her con¬ 
stant awareness of space. 

Inspired by music by such 
artists as Chopin and Tchai¬ 
kovsky, she tried to interpret 
the music. She was inspired 
by Ancient Greece and to the 
horror of the world, she Ignored 
the mode of dress and went 
barelegged and barefooted. In 
the simplest of Greek tunics 
her body was free to move, 
and to reveal the beauty of dance 
without pretense or convention. 

MODERN Dance is explain¬ 
ed by John Martin as “a new 
point of view rather than a cult 
or system.” It is based on the 
theory that dance as an art is 
self-sufficient with costume, 
music, and props as accessory 
elements which serve to en¬ 
hance the performance. 

Beginning, intermediate, 
and advanced classes are of¬ 
fered. Mrs. Gladys Keeton, 
the instructor of Modem Dance, 
hopes to have a Modern Dance 
group next quarter which will 
meet at night once a week. She 
plans for the group to dwell on 
techniques and composition.

Vols Fall To Delta 
In Gridiron Strum 

you’re “in” fashion 
with these exciting 

The Volunteers lost a squeaker Saturday when they were up¬ 
set by the Statesmen of Delta State 19 to 18. 

THE VOLS took the opening kickoff to start the game but 
quickly ran up against stiff opposition and were forced to punt. 

The Statesmen took over 
and rolled for two consecu¬ 
tive first downs but were 
stopped there as Vol line¬ 
backer Terry Butcher fell on a 
Delta fumble. 

The Vols, unable to put to¬ 
gether a scoring drive, were 
forced to punt four plays later. 

ready for action as linebacker 
Terry Butcher and defensive 
end Gordon Lambert teamed 
up to set the Statesmen back 
12 yards in two plays and for¬ 
ced them to punt. 

Vol quarterback Allan Cox 
passed to Richard Whitfield for 
14 yards to set up the score 
which came two plays later as 
tailback Larry Shanks knifed In 
for the TD from the three- 
yard line. The Vols decided 
to try the two-point conver¬ 
sion and it was good as Shanks 
again carried it over for the 
two points to make it 8 to 0 
with 7:11 left in the first quar¬ 

DELTA took the Vol kick¬ 
off but was stopped five plays 
later as defensive end Gordon 
Lambert over-ran the Delta 
quarterback and scooped up 
the ball for the Volunteers. 

After rolling for two 
straight first downs the Vols 
were halted by another Delta 
interception on Delta’s 39yard 
line. Headed by an effective 
passing attack, the Statesmen 
began grinding out yardage to¬ 
ward paydirt. But defensive 
tackle Don Defino had other 
plans as he crashed through 
the Delta State line and slam¬ 
med Delta for a six-yard loss. 

On fourth down Delta kicking 
specialist Wells, booted a 37 
yard field goal for the States¬ 
men making the score 8 to 3 
in favor of UTM as the half 

Delta took Vol kicking 
specialist Lee Mayo’s boot 

in the end zone to open the sec¬ 
ond half. 

LED BY Delta field general 
James Hobson, the Statesmen 
marched down the gridiron into 
Vol territory and were in for 
the score as Hobson hit Delta’s 
James Verson in the end zone 
for the score. Hobson threw to 
Coney for the two point conver¬ 
sion to tie the score at U-all. 

TTie Vols began picking up 
momentum and rolled to four 
straight first downs to the Delta 
13-yard line but were plagued 
by another interception as Delta 
took over. 

DELTA moved within field 
goal range and attempted a 
three-pointer. But the formid¬ 
able wall of the Vols broke 
through and blocked the kick. 

The Vols offensive unit took 
over and led by Bobby Hayes 
pounded out the yardage down 
to the 10-yard line where Vol 
quarterback Allan Cox ran it in 
for the score. Mayo kicked the 
extra point and the score was 
18 to 11 with 7:37 left in the 

held fast by the Vol defense 
after losing the Vol kickoff 
and were forced to punt. The 
Vols were unable to generate 
a scoring drive also and were 
forced to make what proved to 
be the fatal play of the evening. 

Gene Sides of the Volunteers 
punted on fourth down from his 
45-yard line. TTie ball was 
taken by halfback Dendy of the 
Statesmen who returned the punt 
85 yards for the score. Delta’s 
quarterback James Hobson then 
passed to Doney for the two- 
point conversion, putting Delta 
in the win column 19 to 18 as 
the game ended.
